Dear Veena
Very nice recipe and want to try it. I note that no Udad dal is used,,that is interesting! But how do I get butter milk? It has been ages I fermented malai for extracting butter at home and drink the butter milk with grounf green chili and salt in it. Can I use curd, if so how much water I add for one cup of curd..
Have a nice weekend….you are a great cook indeed.

Hi Ushnish, I like to add 5 cups of water to 1 cup of curd as it is easy. Hope you try the recipe
